The first climate communications centre in Australia’s museum sector, the Climate Solutions Centre works to increase positive public engagement in climate change.

About the Climate Solutions Centre

The Australian Museum (AM) has established a Climate Solutions Centre (CSC) to bring together cutting-edge research and insights from people on the ground to create ways of engaging broad audiences with climate solutions.

The CSC has commenced work (June 2022), upscaling the AM’s existing climate initiatives. The CSC team is reaching more people than ever with exhibitions, touring exhibitions, events, workshops, digital resources and school programs.
